Oveja Negra Sauvignon Blanc/Carménère Blend, 2012, Maule Valley, Chile

16 Oct

099You read that right: a white wine made from Sauvignon Blanc and Carménère. Truly unique, fresh and aromatic wine with citrusy grapefruit notes, a hint of tropical fruit, subtle mineral character and a fruity, herbal touch from the Carmenére.

Round Pond Sauvignon Blanc, 2012, Rutherford, California

15 Oct

044Gorgeously perfumed, the aromatics are vibrant yet delicate, with white peach, apricot, citrus zest and a confectionery meringue. The palate offers mouthwatering flavors of honeydew, lemongrass, and kiwi with an acidic pop that lingers for days. Great by itself on a hot afternoon, even better with tuna tartare. $22

Terra Laura, 2010, Cheverny, France

15 Oct

020Sauvignon Blanc (80%) provides intense, grassy aromatics, while Chardonnay (20%) shares green apple, pear and lemon rind. Light, crisp and refreshing, as a good Cheverny Blanc should be. Grab a glass, grab some friends, and grab some steamed Quahog clams. $20

Château Cailleteau Bergeron Blanc, 2011, Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux, France

15 Oct

018A zippy, pungent Sauvignon Blanc expressing aromas of Meyer lemon, tart pear and a hint of grapefruit. Brisk acidity makes for a refreshingly clean finish. Delicious with grilled split lobster tails drizzled with butter and lemon. $16

Val de Mer Saint-Bris Sauvignon Blanc, 2010, Burgundy, France

13 Aug

DSCN1780-001Saint-Bris is the only appellation in Burgundy designated for Sauvignon (Blanc and Gris) production, a certain distinction in a land where Chardonnay rules the realm. Sauvignon Blanc from the region exhibits minerality typical of Chardonnays from neighboring Chablis, and is similar stylistically to the wines of Sancerre in the nearby Loire Valley. Val de Mer is racy and clean, with lemony citrus flavors and grassy notes underscored by brisk, diamond-cut minerality. Beautiful, expressive Sauvignon Blanc, perfect with scallops seared in preserved-lemon compound butter. $25
